4* Monday NBA *BEST BET* on Raptors -3.5
Motivated by back-to-back losses, including an embarrassing 35-point loss in Philly last game, look for the Raptors to take out their frustrations on a team they have owned.
The Raptors have won 13 of the last 14 in this series, including 7 in a row at home by an average of 10.9 points. The Timberwolves are 2-12 ATS in those 14 meetings and 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Toronto. The favorite is 10-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
In addition, the Timberwolves are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games as an underdog of 4.5 points or less. We'll side with the Raptors tonight.
